about us
Onsen Farm is located in a beautiful area of the Hagerman Valley, aka "The Magic Mile", which is renowned for it's abundant spring water and geothermal resources. Our 5.5 acre farm consists of an orchard, outdoor gardens and 8000 sq. ft. of geothermally heated greenhouses. We are now in our sixth year of production. In our greenhouses we grow directly in the soil, which we have been building on since the beginning; worm castings, local goat manure, and cover cropping during the summer months are a few of the things we apply in our greenhouse to ensure great tasting and vibrantly nutritious food. Our season starts in November and we usually finish up in June, right when the summer farmers are starting to come on with their produce.

We are very lucky to have 130 degree artesian geothermal water which enables us to heat our greenhouse sustainably. We have excellent geothermal water rights which allows us the potential of having several greenhouses. We use filtered spring water for watering and for washing our vegetables.

Onsen Farm's mission/vision is to create a permaculture based way of living using sustainable and ethical practices in raising healthy food for vibrant people.
You are welcome to call us and make an appointment to come down for a visit. We are closed on Tuesday and Sunday. James' cell number is 208/720-0673

We practice organic methods, although we are not certified organic.

Note: {Onsen = Japanese healing hot springs}

practices
After testing our soil and then adding organic compost, worm castings, and other organic material we are happy with the results. Good nutrient rich soil creates good nutrient rich vegetables. We use only heirloom and organic seed on our farm. We also do some seed saving for the next seasons planting.

Since we practice organic methods, we do not use pesticides as they can kill the beneficial bugs. Growing greens in the winter months in a greenhouse makes for vulnerability of pests. We use beneficial insects and companion planting to control those pesky aphids (and a bit of time on the hands and knees with blasts of water……..).

Thanks to our fiscal sponsor, Wood River Resource Conservation and Development.
